If you love the iceberg lettuce-filled, Italian dressing-laced salads that are so frequent at pizza parlors, you'll love this simple recipe. Since it's so full of flavorful ingredients, like briny olives, salty cheese, bitter radicchio, and juicy tomatoes, it can hold its own if pizza isn't involved.
After you've made your favorite pot of vegetarian chili, turn the leftovers into a meal that may rival the original. Top a slew of baked potatoes with the chili and plenty of cheddar cheese, bake it in a casserole, and the result is the ultimate comfort food.
These easy flatbreads help make dinner possible in the most dire, almost-empty-fridge situations. Slather them with tomato sauce and cheese for quick pizzas, stuff them with veggies for a satisfying sandwich, or simply top them with avocado and a fried egg.
Blustery March calls for dinner salads that feel a bit cozier than most yet still won't weigh you down. This one is a mix of roasted mushrooms, sweet potatoes, and shallots, all of which are tossed with baby kale that wilts upon contact with the warm root vegetables.
Slather pizza dough with pesto ricotta and pile it with broccoli florets, diced peppers, cherry tomatoes, shaved carrots, and plenty of mozzarella and the result is colorful pizza you can feel good about grabbing another slice of.
Every component of this grain bowl, minus the fried egg, can be prepared up to five days ahead of time. That means you can make the components on Sunday and assemble the bowls as you need for lunch or dinner throughout the week.
4. Vegan Chili
This chili is so meaty that you might not believe it's actually meatless. That's because of the heft provided by the red lentils, black beans, and kidney beans, and the deep flavor that comes from a bit of unsweetened cocoa powder and molasses.
This casserole twist on classic Mexican huevos rancheros is hearty enough to be both brunch or dinner. Tucked inside are layers of tortillas, beans, cheese, and tomato-chile sauce, and the whole thing is finished off with over half a dozen eggs.
This recipe uses a classic spinach-ricotta filling that's easy to love, but don't hesitate to experiment with your own favorite fillings. Roasted veggies, other varieties of cheese, and even beans would be great.
The most-saved vegetarian recipe in March was a fun twist on classic Spanish tortilla. It's got all the garlicky potato and onion goodness of the original but comes together in a family-friendly casserole.
